In the world of rap and hip-hop, only the strong-willed may survive. As rap and hip-hop take the world by storm, more artists flock to the stage to prove their worth. However, mainstream music is a lot harder to conquer.
It is much easier to gain popularity within a genre that is quickly becoming more accessible; however, since many artists are quickly cropping up and overtaking said genre, not everyone's unique voice will be heard.
For artists like HOG, that isn't a problem. That is because a voice as unique as HOG's needs no introduction. HOG brings his upbeat bars to the table and lifts the standards a notch. His bars are fulfilling; they leave you feeling like you got what you were searching for.
Like all unique rap artists, HOG tells his story through his bars. His feelings project out of his poetry like rays through clouds. Born in Okmulgee, OK, and lifelong resident of Tulsa, OK HOG has made it his life's mission to get his music through to the masses.
For HOG, fame isn't as important as his music's effect on people's hearts. HOG remembers his best moment on stage. Opening for E-40 in OK changed the way he viewed live performances. Performing on stage replaces bad energy with good vibes for both the singer and the people in the audience.
Be it Boosie, Kevin Gates, Mozzy, Too Short, YG or any other artist that HOG opened for, that is the feeling he goes back to every time he performs.
HOG likes to stick to the motto his friends repeat every time he performs, i.e., "HOG Got It!" This inspires him to work on his music to give back to his fans and family, the support systems that have backed him since the beginning of his journey.
